About Marilyn and John Darack
We are two active professionals, failures at retirement, attempting to spend as much time as possible in our beloved New Harbor. Marilyn is a musician and has an active piano teaching studio (thus 'Suite') and John is a retired manufacturer of specialty food seasonings and spices (thus 'Thyme'). Now you know why we call our cottage 'Suite Thyme!'
Marilyn and John Darack purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Marilyn and John Darack chose New Harbor
We discovered New Harbor 40 years ago while on a camping trip to Boothbay. We immediately packed up our gear and moved to a campground in New Harbor. We returned year after year, first camping, then renting cottages, then, finally having our own home. Even after all these years we still marvel at the beauty of New Harbor and still enjoy its fabulous amenities and friendly locals. We constantly meet more and more folks who have had similar experiences. After having explored so much of the Maine coast, we just knew we had stumbled into a very special place. To us there is no more pleasant location on earth. Our view is breathtaking. Fabulous restaurants, galleries, beaches; attractions of many types abound.
What makes this Cottage unique
Immense natural beauty, lobsters right off the boat, ever changing surf. Easterly view of islands, working lobstermen, and awesome sunrises make it hard to leave! We find it difficult to tear ourselves away from the property, but with so many attractions and distractions so nearby, we often do just that!

Beautiful Ocean Front Cottage
Absolutely loved this rental. The pictures are exactly like what you find when you arrive. This cottage was spotless & had everything we needed. Would definitely rent again
Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!
Beautiful carriage house and accommodations. Great views of ocean and walking trails nearby. Everything we could think of needing in carriage house was provided. Very clean and comfortable. Will definitely come back again.
We have returned to this special carriage house for several years. Our visit always leaves us feeling so relaxed and rested. The village of New Harbor is such a warm and quaint village offering spectacular views of lobstering and the open ocean. This property allows you to walk on the coastal rocks, wander casually to an active harbor or walk to the local market for fresh baked goodies every morning. You will enjoy the immaculate accommodation of "Suite Thyme" and fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Fully equipped kitchen to prepare meals or browse through the information that has been prepared by the owners. There are many local spots for the best lobster and seafood Maine has to offer. We just can't say enough about this special place!
A Bit of Heaven!
My wife & I stayed in Suite Thyme cottage for a week. The cottage is attractive, clean, comfortable, quiet & well equipped. It has a beautiful view of open ocean, waves crashing on large rocks, and Maine pines. The owners live in a larger home on the property and are welcoming and helpful. We can't think of a single downside to this property, and hope to return......Our favorite restaurant was the Anchor in the neighboring town of Round Pond.
If looking for a place to relax with a great view this is it. Very well kept and the owners are lovely.
Suite Thyme is a wonderful private get-away that provides a beautiful view in comfortable surroundings that is close to so many places to explore.
A true Maine experience!
The lobster fishing village of New Harbor is located near the tip of the Pemaquid Peninsula. Local shopping, galleries, historic sites, and one of Maine's best sandy beaches all within walking distance. Our lighthouse, featured on the Maine quarter coin, is world famous.
A fifteen minute drive to Damariscotta will bring you to a lovely, quaint riverside village with many shops, restaurants, cultural activities, movie theater, and a modern hospital. Camden, Rockland, Augusta, and Boothbay Harbor (don't miss the fabulous new botanical garden!) are all within an hour's drive.
Other Activities: Sandy beach with children's programs and facilities, state parks.
